Rebecca McConkey has a very special reason to support Dry July. She is a breast cancer survivor.

Like thousands of other Victorians, Rebecca has committed to Dry July 2019 – she is driven to fundraise for St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne’s Cancer Centre where she spent many hours throughout her treatment.

Rebecca was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer in 2018 and had to undergo a lumpectomy, radiotherapy and chemotherapy at St Vincent’s Hospital.

After discovering the lump, she went to her GP who organised for her to have a mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy at St Vincent’s. When Rebecca had the surgery, the medical team discovered her cancer was a bit more aggressive than they first thought. So, it was suggested she do a short course of chemo - which is four rounds across 12 weeks - to mitigate any risk.

When Rebecca meets new people, one of their first impressions is her positivity. She was thankfully able to harness this trait to remain upbeat during the whole process. She did say having the love and support of her wonderful husband, Jochen and her two kids, Heide (7) and Amos (10) helped her to cope.

Rebecca is fortunate to work quite close to St Vincent’s. She did impress staff by riding her bike to the hospital to get her treatment.

When asked about her experience at St Vincent’s Cancer Centre Rebecca said, “The team at St Vincent’s were really great, so caring and helpful.”

Post treatment, thankfully Rebecca is now feeling really good. “Physically I feel ‘normal’, in fact my treatment feels like it was years ago.”

All her follow up tests have been really positive. Rebecca will need to continue to take one of the drugs forever, otherwise there is no long term treatment plan.

Rebecca is looking forward to participating in Dry July this year for the first time. “It’s an opportunity for me to give back to the amazing team at St Vincent’s Hospital who offered me such wonderful help and support throughout my journey as a patient.”

My name is Jo and I am participating in Dry July to prove to myself that alcohol is not a necessity in my life. In fact it makes me tired, angry and anxious and I dislike being tired, angry and anxious.

I have completed Feb Fast and Dry July before but this is the first time I am raising funds for an important cause, the St Vincent’s Hospital. I hope that this will make a difference to people affected by cancer and also keep me motivated and accountable throughout July.
